Dog Training Macclesfield & Manchester South & Puppy Education

Home Dog Training Macclesfield & Manchester South

Welcome to dog training Macclesfield & Manchester South, I'm David Jefferay your local Bark Busters dog and puppy behaviour therapist and trainer. If you are checking out my page, you have probably either just got a puppy that has turned your life upside down or you have an adolescent or adult dog that you are not enjoying 100% of the time. You may be experiencing jumping up, barking at noises in the house or garden, they may be pulling your arm out of it socket when on the lead or being reactive to other dogs or people on the street. It could be separation anxiety or chasing animals or running off and not coming back when called.

I have worked with hundreds of owners and with dogs of all shapes and sizes from tiny Chihuahuas to huge English Mastiffs. Whatever the situation and whatever the behaviour, I would be happy to help you and your four-legged friend live in harmony. 

If you are looking for professional dog training near you then you have found the right place. My methods are based on the way that dogs naturally communicate with each other, using voice tone and body language. My training has no harsh methods and leverages the natural instinct that dogs find easy to understand. They quickly learn to trust and have fun playing the games that we teach to rehabilitate the issues you're having. In many cases, it often requires only small tweaks to your relationship with your dog or adjustments to the lifestyle of your dog to see significant improvements in behaviour.

The lessons are one to one carried out in your home and surrounding areas, where outdoor training is needed, as this is where your dog is less stressed and is most comfortable. We will spend plenty of time going through, and understanding, the problems you are having, then I will explain how we are going to address any behaviour problems. There will be lots of opportunity to ask questions and I will ensure that you have lots of time to practice before I leave. 

I will create a personal training plan and send you clear instruction on what you need to do going forward and, with our Bark Busters Support Guarantee packages, I will return free of charge to help and support you in your progress for the term of the programme. Our unique Lifetime of the dog or 12-month support guarantee gives you peace of mind that help is always available for any issue that crops up. With just one payment you receive free return visits and ongoing support for the chosen period.

Feel free to contact me for a no-obligation chat about your needs by either clicking on the box above to send an email or by calling the freephone number. I look forward to hearing from you and learning about your dog.

You can also read my client reviews to see what other people just like you have to say about me.

About me
I've always loved dogs and as I was growing up the family had a succession of dogs. The first one I regarded as being "mine" was Buster, a male Border Collie cross German Shepherd. He was a wonderful dog who spent long days with me and friends playing in the local woods during school holidays. My first dog as an adult, after leaving home, was Cassie, a young rescue dog who cleverly adopted me when I went to a rescue centre. I trained her myself and she became an amazing dog.

My current dog, Perra, is a German Shepherd x Galgo Espanol (a Spanish Greyhound type hunting dog) and is a rescue from Spain. She joined the family in 2016 when she was about 7 months old.  When she arrived, she had some dog reactivity issues, so I do know how my clients feel when their dog spots other dogs from 10 miles away and they start to worry. I also know what it is like introducing a new dog to family cats, chickens, and to babies when they arrive, because we have been through that too.

I also spend a couple of hours a week volunteering for German Shepherd Rescue Elite helping out with the dogs (because I don’t spend enough time with dogs!).

Please get in touch so we can make a start giving you and your dog the relationship and life you both really want.

Backed by the Bark Busters Support Guarantee

You only pay once and I return free of charge until you're happy that the problem is fixed. Not only that, if your dog develops a different problem it's all covered on the guarantee too, at no additional cost.
